We are a privately-owned international property company. With a track record of over 340 years, we develop, manage and invest with a purpose of improving property and places to deliver lasting commercial and social benefit. We achieve our purpose by adopting a farsighted approach, being locally engaged and sharing and benefitting from our international experience – we call this our Living Cities approach.
Our structure includes four regional Operating Companies and an Indirect Investment business.
Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, Grosvenor Americas, Grosvenor Asia Pacific and Grosvenor Europe are each responsible for their own property strategies. Together, they enable the Group to diversify by geography, sector, currency, property activity and management team. Last year, their combined activities accounted for 89% of the Group’s capital as they developed, managed and invested in property assets, principally in the retail, residential and office sectors.
Our Indirect Investment business further diversifies the Group’s property interests by backing specialist third-party management teams. By the end of last year, it had invested 11% of Grosvenor Group’s capital in Africa, Australia, Europe, and North and South America.
The Grosvenor Holding Company aims to ensure that the strength of the Group is greater than the sum of its parts. It is responsible for supporting the Group Board in making strategic decisions (for example in relation to allocating the Group’s capital); for maintaining oversight of the Group’s activities and for governance; and for a range of value-adding activities which provide expert assistance, advice and support across the Group in a number of specialist areas including: communications and brand management, corporate finance, corporate reporting, human resources, legal, research, tax, technology and treasury.
